Anyone else watching/watched it?

I watched it. Not sure how satisfying you’ll find the ending, but it was a show you couldn’t look away from for sure.

Late to this show but finally started Mr. Robot, just finished episode 3 and it’s fantastic. Was looking for something really well written/acted, pretty dark, and instantly interesting and it checked off all the boxes. Hoping the quality stays consistent because they’ve set up some super intriguing storylines and characters just a couple episodes in, even side characters like Tyrell

Warning, season 2 is a bit incoherent and I almost stopped watching. It steadies itself in later seasons and the final season is great. Enjoy, fun weird and well done series.

Spoiler:
I'm going to start episode 6 tonight but my hunch is that somehow it's going to end with Katie Segel's character locked in an asylum or dead. I'm assuming it's not a "happy" ending based on what I've seen so far.

Yeah, super well done, I love how uninhibited they are playing middle school kids. I forget they are adults all the time. Hits the nostalgia zone nicely.

I liked the first season but was annoyed by how it ended and stopped watching when the 2nd season was panned. Well-made but really straddles the line between homage and theft.

One of my favorite shows ever. Agreed with most of what Weekapaug said. Really fun ride; I'm jealous you're experiencing it for the first time.

Welp, I was waaaay off. I was slightly underwhelmed by the series finale but I think the choices they made tied everything together poetically.

I loved the juxtaposition of science vs. magical/religious/dogmatic thinking.

Seeing the vampire/angel/whatever that was through the lens of our political/economic/religious systems was fascinating. The sheep mentality of the congregation, only a few realized too late that they had been duped.

Them burning the island and dying as a result of their fanatical thinking and fear. Leaving two children on a rowboat in the middle of the ocean, in the middle of nowhere without anything sounds about as right a metaphor for what we are doing to ourselves and the planet as you can get.

There is so much more and the show gave me plenty to chew on, which is all I ask for these days.

It's a huge bummer that Injustice: Gods Among Us is apparently terrible.

Feels like it could be an allegory for a lot of the current **** storm in the world. I guess, based on your own perspective you could fit the narrative to be a comment on just about anything. I think my May takeaway was fanaticism is bad no matter what the cause.

Oh yeah, that too for sure. That show was like an onion.

Watched it. It's worse than I imagined. I'm so bummed at all the terrible choices that were made.

I hope this is good but DC just hasn't translated into many good movies yet. Nolan's Batmans are legendary but beyond that it's slim pickings.

Visuals look great in that movie. It’ll probably suck though.

Pattinson looks like an early 00's emo kid Bruce Wayne. That's certainly uh, a decision.
